How do, First post so be gentle. I have a ZOOM MRS-1044 which I've had for a few years. I've transferred tracks onto mini-disc which (somehow) I managed to transfer to my old PC via the mic input and put onto CD with no problems. I have replaced my PC and now find it cannot be done. I have since learnt that this is due to mini-disc being analog and therefore not compatible with PC directly. (God knows how I managed it before then!) So I tried to go direct from the Zoom (which is HD so should be compatible) via the headphones to mic input and it produces the same result - 'pops' and 'crackles' and a sort of tremelo effect which I don't particularly want. I've looked at variou threads and googled a lot and I keep seeing 'interface' and such like but this means nothing to me. I only need stereo to be output as the songs are complete. I have 1/4", RCA, MIDI and digital outs on the ZOOM and obviously only the mic or USB inputs on the PC. As it should be a straight digital transfer do I need an interface or anything else or will a simple cable which converts one of the outputs on the ZOOM to a USB connection do the job? I appreciate any help in advance!
